What do you ladies think of place names? Like London, Ireland, Scotland, etc? Yay or nay?
I like them. Not for my kids though.
My daughters name is Cairo.. So yay!
some are okay...
i have a friend who named her little boy Boston
i just personally wouldnt name my child after any location
I like some and some I think are overused or just don't sound like a person.
Generally not a fan. I'd possibly use one for a pet though.
I had two ex boyfriends named after places when i was in Hs.. (dear god that was ages ago hahaha.) one was london, the other was dallas.. a friend of mine named her son camden, which is a town in Nc. there are a lot of people with name places that don't even realize that it's a town or county somewhere.
I don't like place names like Lexington or Scotland that have absolutely no meaning and were not intended to be used as names.
But Aurora? Orlando? Alexandria? Charlotte? Those were names with meaning long before it was a known as a "place" name. Both my children have "place" names, but they also have meaning and history.
